N.Y. CUs Raise $75,000 For Causes At Convention
ALBANY, N.Y. (6/24/13)--Attendees of the Credit Union Association of New York's Annual Meeting and Convention participated in several fundraiser events, raising nearly $75,000 for three causes: The New York Credit Union Foundation, the state-level Credit Union Political Action Committee (CUPAC) and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that serve New York.

Nearly 700 New York credit union representatives and system providers gathered for the event.

CUNA Mutual Group presented a check for $31,000 to NYCUF, assisted by sponsor and credit union support for the annual golf tournament, held June 13 and 15 during the convention. Nearly 150 golfers participated. An additional $6,000 was raised for NYCUF through a special reception to honor outgoing CUANY Chairman Lou Jimenez.

By supporting the annual Silent Auction and the first Bingo event, convention attendees raised more than $15,000 for CUPAC, New York credit unions' state-level political action committee.

Sponsorships, donations and a match from CO-OP Financial Services' Miracle Match program helped a Wine Pull raise more than $22,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that serve New York. A total of 202 "mystery bottles" of wine were pulled during the event.
